Today I heard the word 'caveat' for the first time. What does the word mean? I would appreciate if a member may please explain briefly whether a caveat can be issued by the lower court or only by High Court.
From India , Calcutta
A 'Caveat' means a caution or warning given by a party to the court not to take any action or grant any relief to the applicant without notice being given to the party lodging the caveat. It is common in testamentary proceedings. It is a precautionary measure taken against the grant of probate or letter of administration, by the person lodging the caveat. Caveat is an opportunity of being heard to the caveator. Section 148 A of Code of Civil Procedure 1908 deals with this.
From India , Mumbai
Caveat means in case if anyone files a case against someone, a request is given to the court that before accepting and registering the case against the someone, the someone must be informed about the case.
